MISSISSIPPI MERMAID in 35mm

Introduction by writer, translator, film programmer and critic Nicholas Elliott

[LA SIRÈNE DU MISSISSIPPI]
In the far-flung French colony of New Caledonia, lonely plantation owner Louis Mahé (Jean-Paul Belmondo) hits the jackpot when his mail-order bride steps off the plane in the person of beautiful Julie Roussel (Catherine Deneuve). But the mysterious Julie seems to be running from something. When murder and intrigue enter into the equation, Louis finds himself in a compromising position and soon on the run, alternately chasing and being chased by the dangerous Julie across the continents. Belmondo and Deneuve make a gorgeous pair, tres chic and at the height of their '60s-era cool, in this amour fou-fueled romp. DIR/SCR/PROD François Truffaut, from the novel "Waltz into Darkness" by Cornell Woolrich; PROD Marcel Berbert. France/Italy, 1969, color, 123 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
